Thousands of tern chicks hatch on Rockabill

'As of the 6th of June, both our Roseate Tern and Common Tern eggs have started hatching. After weeks and weeks of looking in hundreds of boxes every day, one of our wardens was excited to come across the first very fluffy, very small Tern chick of the 2020 season!'

'As each chick hatches, they are temporarily borrowed from mum and dad, weighed, their wing length measured and are fitted with a shiny new bit of jewelry. While being the height of fashion, and absolutely de rigueur for every discerning young tern, this small metal band is also useful to us humans. Each band is inscribed with a unique code that will be used to identify this tern for the entirety of its life. '

'While we’re measuring, ringing and checking, the chicks are getting bigger, stronger and growing the feathers they’ll need to fledge. In a month they’ll be flying, and not long after they’ll be off.'
